Good hotel, ideal base for our visit.

Posted May 24, 2017
Pros: Lovely modern rooms, extremely clean, well positioned.
Cons: Rather expensive, had to pay extra for breakfast.
Location: I visited to go to a specific museum in Mechelen. But close to Brussels.
I travelled with a friend to visit a specific museum in Mechelen. I otherwise wouldn't have visited Mechelen as I had never heard of it. I was very pleasantly surprised, Mechelen is a lovely little town not far from Brussels. Transport links in Belgium are very good. The shops, restaurants etc are lovely. We found the Belgium people to be extremely friendly and helpful. Would be an ideal weekend break location.

Well-maintained and conformable hotel. Didn't have the breakfast as it seemed rather over-priced

Mechelen Business Trip

Posted Oct 27, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is a standard business hotel. Service was fine, space was fine, rooms where fine, bar was fine, food was fine. All fine, except... The bed was rock hard and each morning you wake with a back ache and can only just move. The pillows are like foam concrete (a first for me!) and they have no others you can ask for. The air-conditioning does not work and although is was only 4 degrees outside and the windows was wide open it never got below 22 degrees in the room. The bar and reception area have no fabric so everything echo's and even a soft whisper sounds like a sonic boom... I'll not be staying again as there are far better places to stay in the same area... It is "fine" though so don't let me put you off.

Amazing Summer holidays @Novotel Mechelen

Spent 4 night with the family in this hotel. Excellent customer service. Ideal size bedroom and good housekeeping. Nice food served. Above all a nice relaxing urban environment with nice sceneries. Really enjoyed the stay!!!

Typical Nocatel in a pleasant location.

Posted Aug 18, 2016 on Hotels
This is a fairly typical Novatel with smart modern rooms (albeit without any obvious human touches in the design). I booked a superior room which was consequently quite large, with two wardrobes, a minibar, separate bathroom and toilet and the bathroom was equipped with a proper shower as well as a bath. The bed was very comfortable and a good size. WiFi was fast and free. Breakfast was not included but offered a good selection of warm and cold food. I also ate in the hotel restaurant in the evening and the food was good and at a reasonable price. Service was OK, but one of the bar staff gave the impression he was quite new and the coffee machines at breakfast both ran out of coffee. The hotel is close to a canal with open air bars so pleasant to walk around. Mechelen Station is about 15 minutes walk away.
